GRUMPY IS GOOD!
Mark is playing at Davey's Uptown tomorrow, and since I am not giong to Chicago for NYE, I am thinking about heading there.
Grumpy was better in my mind from a musical listening standpoint, but Mongol was better as a performance. Christian is a helluva showman. Jeff is AWESOME though with his musical ability, and the rest of the guys aer awesome as well. I could not believe how much better Jeff had gotten listening to them the other night. Mark and Kyle were simply amazing, Scott well, man he looks the same, acts the same, and just is crazy with his own bas playing ways. Billy looked like he never missed a beat over time, they were great to watch.
I ran into Thomas (Bassist) and was glad, it had been over 12 years since I had seen him. I talk with Basham (drummer) semi-regularly he and I were rooommates before I left to move back to KC from chicago.
Listening to the discs though of both bands, the Grumpy Album was better, of course it was prodeuced better so that plays a part, but even with my ex there both nights were awesome and you did miss a spectactular show.
